Want to get paid to shop on Amazon?
Of course you do! Who wouldn’t?
Thanks to free 2-day-shipping with Amazon Prime, you can get pretty much anything your heart desires on your doorstep within a few days.
How can you be rewarded for shopping on Amazon?
So I stumbled upon this free app called Shoptracker that actually gives you back $3 a month for just shopping on Amazon. Most of us already shop on Amazon, so there’s no extra work needed. It’s basically free money.
At $3 a month, that’s $36 a year of totally passive income.
Not exactly money to write home about. BUT every penny counts and $36 a year is one-third of the price of your Prime membership.
I love free money, so I jumped on this opportunity. Here’s what I learned:
What is Shoptracker and how can you make $36 a year with it?
Free money? Shopping on Amazon? How does it all work?
Well, Shoptracker is owned by Harris Poll Online which is a reputable survey company who is hired by large companies to measure public opinion.
Companies like Amazon and Apple pay Harris Poll Online to figure out what consumers like you and me care about.
In this case, Shoptracker wants to know what we buy on Amazon. Don’t worry it keeps our private data anonymous. Shoptracker only wants to know the price, ISBN number, date of purchase, etc of your Amazon transaction history.
Lots of companies *cough*Google*cough* already sells our purchase history and much more. So why not let Shoptracker split a part of their profit with us?
Do you qualify for Shoptracker?
Qualifying to earn an extra $36 a year is easy. You have to:
- Be at least 18 years old and live in the U.S.
- Have to shop on Amazon (doh!)
- Be authorized to download the app on your computer or device.
- Have a windows compatible computer. Currently, Shoptracker doesn’t work on Macs 😔
Hopefully, you can check all these qualifications pretty quickly. Time to download the Shoptracker app.
How to download the Shoptracker app and start getting paid
Don’t worry, the sign-up and download process takes less than 4 minutes.
First, go to the Shoptracker homepage and enter some personal details. Don’t worry, this data is securely protected.
Once your account is created, you have to answer a short 3-question survey to make sure you qualify.
There are no right or wrong answers, just answer honestly. The three questions are:
- How often do you shop at Amazon?
- What kind of Amazon account do you have?
- Does your household have multiple Amazon accounts? (You will get paid $3/month for each account!)
Answer all those questions and you’ll see a screen that says if you qualify or not. I think the only way NOT to qualify is if you selected “I do not shop at Amazon at all” on the first question.
The next screen describes all the details of the offer and how you’ll get paid. Each month you’ll receive a $3 Visa e-gift card in your email inbox.
This will keep happening until you cancel Shoptracker.
Boom! You’ll now be prompted to continue downloading the Shoptracker app. You’ll get your first $3 gift card shortly after!
